Cell Biology

Our systems biology project consists in a field monitoring program to evaluate the effects of toxic contaminants (e.g. heavy metals and hydrocarbons) on “sea sentinels” (organisms representing early living warning systems) purposely placed in different contaminated areas. We also evaluate the effect of nanoparticles on viability, proliferation and differentiation of human cells with particular attention toward human mesenchymal stem cells.
